When the Light Fades

When the Light Fades

A Poem by Violet's Run
"

A moment out of time to pause and take a much needed breath.. and to drink in life.

"
When the light fades
Behind the garden wall at dusk
Leaving the twinkling fire flies to dance
Like madcap fairies drunk on elderwine.

I take in the dusk and the sweet scents
The light breeze that brushes my face.
The sensation of awareness and life.
I am not sad that this is momentary.

I embrace the destiny I was born for.
When the light fades.
Leaving the porch light sparkling in the wind. 
with the crickets in orchestra around me.

No one knows their future.
Except the certainty of change.
Of transformation and rebirth.
of beginnings and endings.

It is night now.
I light the paper lamp and say a prayer.
Letting the little kite rise upwards.
Carrying my heart on a string.
When the light fades..

and let out more string so that we can fly to places unknown...glad to let go of certainty in order to allow change....nicely said.
especially like the firefly line..."like madcap fairies drunk on elderwine"
